Like I said, you can mix and match anything you'd like. Be creative....and adding shrimp is most definately creative.

DQ, I'm not sure where the low calories come in, but it was definately good to eat.

A tablespoon of asiago has very few calories, the spinach has practically none, chicken breast meat has fewer calories than dark meat, and the ricotta is low in calories if you're using part skim ricotta. The sauce, is a very simple sauce and if you use fresh tomatoes that's even lower in calories. It's a heck of a lot lower in fat and cholesterol than the regular meat sauced, cheese laden lasagna we're all familiar with. AND it taste a lot better I think. If I have time I will calculate the calories in your version.

Okay here goes: given the amounts you used in your recipe, I come up with about 275 calories per roll - give or take for amount accuracy. You could have 2 and still be below the 600 calorie level.
Heres the breakdown as my calorie counter gives it:

Asiago cheese 40
Part skim ricotta 70
Spinach (frozen) 6
Chicken breast 35
Lasagna noodle 90
Fresh tom. sauce 35 ( I had no way of knowing what sauce you used.)

Good research.

The tomato sauce was diced San Marzano tomatos. I guess it really isn't that bad. What about the beschamel though? 2 T butter & flour, about 2 cups whole milk, 1/2 cup grated parm. If the beschamel is alot, you could just spoon that on the plate so you can control the amount per serving.

Dang!! Forgot about the bechemel. Okay, so add another 40 calories. It's too good to pass up for a few extra calories. I don't add bechemel so I didn't think of it. Even the picture looks good enough to eat. You did a good job jeekinz
